BrooksLooks@ Two Broken Hearts

an injured leg
a vicious break
then the inevitable steps
a vet must take

adrenaline runs wild
with anguish and stress
their only relief
is in her caress

a needle takes away his pain
as uncertainty grows in wild eyes
then a final, fatal injection
Fuzzy’s strong heartbeat dies

two hearts lay broken
in the dust on the ground
after a raging storm
tears rain down
on Fuzzy’s neck
still warm

how she will miss him
and the sweet love they shared
their burdens and joys
how deeply she cared

there are hoofbeats in heaven
where Fuzzy runs free
down here a dark empty stall
a snip of mane and a memory

our herd is diminished
as sweet Fuzzy dies
his life sanctified
by the tears in her eyes
